The firm: Established in 1989, S.S. Rana & Co. is a premier intellectual property and corporate law firm having a pan-Indian presence. It is one of the very few IP firms registered as ‘Advocate-on-Record’ (AOR) with the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India which equips it to represent clients’ rights from the lower courts to the Apex court.
For more than two and a half decades the firm has been facilitating its clients in protecting, enforcing, defending and monetising their intellectual property rights in India and the world over. The firm’s long-standing relationship with many fortune 500 companies and several esteemed international and national corporations speaks laurels of its diligent and strategic legal services. The senior partners of the firm have over four decades of litigation experience and the partners and associates of the firm have represented clients at all levels of the judicial hierarchy.

“Diversity & inclusion, which are the real grounds for creativity must remain at the center of what we do”
~ Marco Bizzarri
Diversity & Inclusion
At S.S. Rana & Co., we take a holistic view of diversity that looks beyond the usual measurements. A view that includes the varied perspectives of our lawyers, as well as paralegals, support staff, vendors etc. and anyone who aspires to a future in the legal profession.
Why? Because we know that new ideas come from diverse ways of seeing things. As a firm committed to diversity, we engage our lawyers through mentorship, teamwork, and a steadfast belief in the power of our profession to change the society. By doing so, we create an environment that encourages innovative thinking and forges stronger bonds.
We have an unwavering commitment to diversity with the aim that every one of our people has a full sense of belonging within our firm. As a business imperative, every person at SSRANA & Co. has the responsibility to create and sustain an inclusive environment.

Because we know that new ideas come from diverse way of seeing things.
Making Diversity and Inclusion a part of our culture puts our business ahead of the curve, and focusing specifically on our leadership team has helped us in facilitating a top-down approach, so that it trickles through our entire firm and diversity is quite evident as 57% of our leaders are Women Employees.
Specially-abled Inclusion Advantage
We also embrace best practices by employing and supporting more persons who are specially-abled and provide equal opportunities to them.
Legal & Non-Legal
Our Firm is constantly evolving, and diversity and inclusion are among the most important forces driving the evolution and reinvention. Our commitment to diversity comes from our conviction that reaching a critical mass of women and underrepresented minorities in our workforce bring ample benefits. These go far beyond the professional benefits to the firm – which are many – to include the entire legal fraternity and our wider communities beyond.
Inclusion means ensuring that all employees are, and feel, free to bring their full selves to work, offer their true and unguarded perspectives, and find a welcoming and inviting place for those ideas. True change is made through both diversity and inclusion. Together, these concepts are transforming and defining our culture and how we all work together at S.S. Rana & Co.
Under 30 – Employee Ratio
Diversity in a team makes the workplace have a healthy environment. Our female representation is steadily increasing, and we’re proud of the progress we are making. For example, 31% of our employees under 30 are women.
Region & Religion Wise
India is one of the most religiously and ethnically diverse nations in the world, with some of the most deeply religious societies and cultures. At S.S. Rana & Co., we endeavor to bring all the communities in the country together, which is why we have representation from each and every corner of the country.
We as a firm believe that government laws, regulations and business practices should uphold the principles of equality and that no one should be discriminated against because of their differences, such as age, ability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion or sexual orientation. We remain committed to an inclusive and diverse workplace.We as a firm believe that government laws, regulations and business practices should uphold the principles of equality and that no one should be discriminated against because of their differences, such as age, ability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion or sexual orientation.
